Workshops

  member icon CAOT members receive discounts

Workshops are one- to three-day live in-person events that provide you with in-depth, evidence-informed, occupation-based and hands-on learning opportunities so you can apply the skills and knowledge to your practice. They include various learning and interactive activities including presentations, demonstrations, group discussions, hands-on activities and the opportunity to ask questions. 

CAOT is pleased to partner with le programme de développement professionnel continu du programme d’ergothérapie de l’Université de Montréal to expand our workshop offerings in Quebec and in French.  CAOT Members and Associates receive preferred rates!

COVID-19 update March 17, 2020

In light of restrictions on gatherings due to COVID-19, we are not running any in-person workshops for the foreseeable future. We are working with presenters to provide alternate solutions for all workshops scheduled to April 30, 2020. These upcoming workshops will either be offered online, or postponed to a later date. Updates will be posted to our website and shared via our PD eblasts and OT Weekly as they become available. Specific information on the status of each workshop will be sent to registrants by the end of day Friday March 20th.  Please understand that our Professional Development team is receiving a high volume of member inquiries at this point; we will respond to your calls and emails at our earliest possible convenience. Thank you for your understanding.
